Nelson was known as the mining town in the past. It was notoriously famous for murderous disputes and blood shedding. But, flash flooding made this whole area uninhabitable. Today, it has become a popular tourist attraction which will take you to early nineteenth century and will give you a tour of the past. There are some ranch houses scattered across the area and a couple of mining tours which will tell you a lot about how workers used to live during that time. Consider visiting this small town if you want to explore unique places around Clark County, Nevada.
